Re: Road to BDO World Championships 2019

So 3 faded PDC TV Players & Jim Wedmeyer all made it this year ? and Paula Jackchin in the top 14 of women's players in the world ?

This has to be the strongest Amateur World Championships Fields for both sexes since their inception in 94 & 2001 respectively.

Think you expecting things to happen too quickly. The long term broadcasting deal is a great start but you will probaby need to wait until next year before the sponsors are in place to enable decent increases in the prize funds. This isn't going to happen there is no multi national company out ther...

Re: PDC Premier League 2019

Scott Waites did phenomenally well to win the GSOD in 2010, as has been recognised on this forum ad infinitum. Great player who in 2010/11 could have done well had he switched.
